Churchill was an asshole but the line about Democracy being the worst form of government except the other ones that have been tried was pretty right on I think. Monarchies are a farce. I hate the idea of titles being place on someone from birth. Dictatorships. Need I say no more.

The problem with monarchs, just like the problem with Presidents, is what about when you get a bad one. A bad president can usually be replaced, a bad monarch you’re usually stuck.

But a good monarch is a blessing. King Juan Carlos saved Spain from fascism twice, in 1978 and again in 1981. The British royal family ousted Edward VIII when he needed ousting, did it in a way that avoided the sort of unrest that usually accompanies a monarch being ousted… and his younger brother George VI died young from the stress of having to weather WWII, the transition from Empire to Commonwealth, and training his young daughter to be the very model of what a modern monarch in a constitutional monarchy ought to be.

There’s days I think King Barack I, with lifetime tenure, maybe would have been a good thing.
